It’s week 13 of the 52 Weeks 52 Letters Project, and I seem to be getting the hang of it. The key seems to be to figure out who I want to write to and then immediately address and stamp the envelope. That way, when inspiration and free time descend upon me, I’m ready to go!

This week, I wrote to my friend Sarah, who, although she lives in town, deserves her own letter. She and I have grown very close over the past dozen years or so that we’ve worked together, and is one of only a few co-workers who live at my end of town. We have spent countless hours together walking, drinking tea, taking the kids to the pool, vacationing, eating, bitching and moaning. She doesn’t like being mentioned on the blog, so she has a couple of different pseudonyms to hide under. But today, she goes under her actual name.

So Sarah, keep an eye on your mailbox. Week 13 is for you!

Are you keeping up with the letter writing challenge?

I keep losing track of what week I’m on, but I do continue to write letters for this challenge!

This week I’m writing to my sister-in-law in Florida. These days she and I mainly keep in touch by long email letters, but years ago we exchanged handwritten letters. It’ll be nice to renew the old-fashioned correspondence.

I got behind last week, spring break, a trip to visit an out of state college, but I’ll be catching up with 2 letters this week. I loved getting mail this week from a past recipient, it really makes my day when I get mail too!!!
I really am enjoying this project.

I have not taken on the challenge, but I do send thank-you notes for various reasons.
